  • New Achievements and Statistics

We’ll keep you posted on all of the latest patch 4.1 information – keep reading for all of the latest additions!

The Return of Zul’Gurub and Zul’Aman

Most notable to mention are two major class raid revamps – Zul’Gurub and Zul’Aman are both being reintroduced into the game as 5-player Cataclysm Heroics! These new Heroics will require a minimum item level of 346 to enter, and drops will be 353 epic items – that’s right, epics in Heroics! Cue rage now! But don’t assume they’re going to come easy – these dungeons are intended to provide players with more challenging Heroic content (which should be much appreciated after the recent waves of nerfs)! And yes, there will be mounts


New Zone and Epic Trinkets – Firelands Raid Coming?

We’ve discovered a new zone – Molten Front, which (judging by the name) could possibly contain the Firelands raid we’ve all been waiting for – including the Ragnaros encounter! After all, something has to be the source of these amazing new item level 378 and 391 epic trinkets, right?

New Class Skills


  • New Discipline / Holy Mastery: Absolution – Enables your Dispel Magic spell to be cast on friendly targets to remove 2 harmful magical effects. (The spell is being changed in 4.1 and will no longer be able to be cast on friendly players, only self and enemies.)


  • Rallying Cry (Level 83) – Temporarily grants you and all party or raid members within 30 yards 20% of maximum health for 10 sec. After the effect expires, the health is lost.

New Mounts and Companion Pets

Unfortunately, the return of Zul’Gurub and Zul’Aman does not mark the return of the classic raid mounts Amani War Bear, Swift Zulian Tiger or Swift Razzashi Raptor. Instead, brand new mounts have been added! In addition, quite a few other mounts have been discovered with this first batch of data, though sources are yet to be determined – some may be TCG items. One thing’s for sure – new mounts are awesome.

New Mounts

New Companions

New Guild Reputation Tabards

Hell, it’s about time! No word yet on any required reputation levels to purchase the different versions.

New Achievements and Statistics

Kill statistics have been added for all Cataclysm raid content! Now you can track your personal Deaths to elevator boss (Blackwing Descent) like a champ!
